Anyone have any great experiences to share about the use of a data visualization?

As XL Group's Kim says, she expects the business users to be "amazed" by what they see. XL is a big user of advanced analytics, but if there were any naysayers then Visual Analytics ought to put an end to that!

Or to skim through a massive PDF. And think of the time saved from the analysts' perspective too. With the visual dashboard, in this case with the analytics engine as part of it, the business can ask questions of the data and the analyst can imediately select different variables, etc., and rerun the visual. That's got to have huge impact.

It really is much easier to take it all in from an image then thumb through a stack of spiral bound reports.

and your right Noreen, they look much more flashy in the board room. ;-)

More people relate to images than numbers. If you want to sell the c-suite, this is the route to go.

Its a good idea to have a visual to relate to the data, if presented well it should add to the value of the data and help the end user get more out of it.
